Simple, decent hotel in central London
Posted Jan 25, 2017
I enjoyed my three nights at this hotel well enough: for the relatively low price, it was simple, but clean and friendly. I had a single room, which was very small, but I didn't really need much space. The mattress was very thin, but I had a decent few nights' sleep on it. There was a sink in the room with soap and a hand towel, but the bathrooms were communal and down a flight of stairs from where my room was. The only issue I had was that it wasn't clear how to ensure you got clean towels after using them, having no bathroom floor or shower to use to signal this.
The staff were very friendly, the Bloomsbury coffee house's breakfast discounts and free hot drink for residents were great, as the cafe is lovely, and the location is incredibly central, only minutes from Russell Square, Euston, and King's Cross St Pancras tube stations, as well as being close to several bus stops.
The worst part was that my room had no plug points: I had to spend a few hours in the TV lounge each night in order to charge my phone. The lounge itself was pleasant enough, though. Overall, I had a good stay here.
